CafĂ© Rebecca is a non-profit gluten-free work program in Rebecca School. The Cafe works to create a safe learning environment to develop Vocational/Life Skills for the transitions students of the school. Through the CafĂ© Rebecca program, transitions students (ages 15-21) bake, deliver, promote and run all aspects of the cafĂ©. Rebecca School's student bakers create everything from the promotional items, packaging and logos, to the actual cupcakes and cookies, which are always delicious! Aside from giving students with ASD opportunities to work together within the context of Cafe Rebecca, It is also important for the students and staff to use this project as a tool to help others learn more about healthy choices while making cooking a fun shared experience for all.
Most recently, the students of Care Rebecca started to share some of their unique, gluten free and vegan recipes with their followers on social media. This program has been so successful that Rebecca School started a dedicated section on their website at rebeccaschool.org focused on the Cafe and the various activities the students get involved in as part of this program. This section of their website also offers as the central hub to many of their most popular recopies.
It is important to note that Cafe Rebecca is a non-profit program and is run by the Rebecca Association Of Autism. The program is completely funded by donations from supporters of the Cafe, who follow and interact with the student chefs on facebook and other social media platform the school employs.
